How To Prepare For Your First Gig On Guitar

2023-01-18T17:01:47+04:00

Learn The Songs! Sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people breeze over this and worry too much about all of their different preset changes or buying all sorts of gear to use! Everyone has their own way of learning songs for a gig, so find what works for you and make that your routine leading up to a gig. Personally, I like to start going over the setlist as early as possible to allow the material plenty of time to sink into both my brain and muscle memory. My goal is to always be at a stage where [...]

How To Keep Your Motivation When Learning to Play Guitar

2022-12-06T19:20:43+04:00

Learn Songs That You Like! There is nothing worse than summoning up the courage to sit down and practice a song that you don’t like. We’ve all been there, and we all know that we’re far less likely to practice these songs. That’s why it is extremely important to learn songs that you like! Whether it’s completely subconscious or not, you will be 100 times more likely to sit down and practice if you’re learning your favourite songs on the guitar. You can start off by making a playlist of your favourite songs of all time (or you may already have [...]

How to Hold Your Plectrum

2022-11-09T17:35:48+04:00

A small but important detail that is often overlooked in guitar playing is how to hold your plectrum. Now although there are many different approaches and techniques to this, some are more correct than others, and will depend on what you are playing! Find The Right Pick For You Before you even worry about how to hold the thing, the first thing you should consider is what pick is the right one for you. Depending on what style of music you play, different thicknesses, sizes, and materials will have a big affect on how comfortable the pick will feel to use. [...]

How To Teach Yourself Guitar

2022-08-18T15:25:09+04:00

Start With The Basics I have seen many new students of mine who have been learning guitar for some time independently skipping many fundamentals, which ultimately holds them back as they try to progress further in their guitar journey. Many people skip the basics such as the body parts, open string names, basic fretting technique and picking/strumming/plucking techniques. Once these fundamental techniques have been practised it will make learning new songs a million times easier since you won’t be held up thinking about which string is the B string or why the note sounds weird since you aren’t fretting it correctly. [...]

How Many Hours Should You Practice Guitar A Day?

2022-08-12T14:37:41+04:00

How Long Is a Piece of String? The blessing and curse of this question is that there is no straight forward answer to how many hours a day you should be practising the guitar. This will depend from person to person, and will also depend on other factors such as how much spare time a person realistically has per day to dedicate to their practice. This will also vary depending on the age of the student. If a child student realistically has 15-30 minutes free after school before they eat dinner to then start winding up for the day, they may [...]

The Basics of Rock Guitar: Where to Start Your Journey!

2022-02-01T23:43:06+04:00

Who Are Your Guitar Heroes? Now there must be a reason why you want to start learning rock guitar, and it’s probably because you’ve been listening to a particular guitarist or rock band, and you want to be just like them! Or at least, sound something like them. Identifying who your influences are in this genre will be helpful in establishing your goals on the guitar and give you a sound in your head to work towards. For example, if you love Slash from Guns ’N’ Roses, working towards playing the intro to “Sweet Child ‘O Mine” or the strummy intro [...]
